Recorded on March 28, 1928 in San Antonio, Texas. This recording is considered one of the first of what would be later categorized as "Western" or "Texas" Swing, popularized later by Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys. The style is a unique amalgam of blues, ragtime, jazz and old time fiddle music. Michelle Shocked claims that Prince Albert Hunt chose to live "on the wrong side of the tracks." He was shot to death outside of a Dallas bar in March of 1931. favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Music, Acoustic, Country, Instrumental, Old-Time Appalachian, Fiddle Tune, 78rpm Source: 78RPM>CD>MP3
